Dining after midnight in LV


Any tips on where someone who works until midnight can take a date on Valentine's (just after).
Most upscale places close around 11, and many places just have a limited (bar) menu.. My default would be Sedona, but that's old news to me. Anyone have a new suggestion?
Much appreciated.

  1. There are some pretty good options still in play at that time off of the Strip. What come to mind first are three of the prime spots that many Chef's go for a nibble after their shifts are over -

    Raku (5030 West Spring Mountain) is open until 3 am.
    Forte (4180 South Rainbow) also open until 3.
    Sen of Japan (8480 West Desert Inn) open until 2.

      Ha! Did Raku last Valentine's...a good recommendation. Forgot about Forte. Thank You

    2. Good friends of ours who own restaurants just got back from staying at the Cosmo and besides their love for Jaleo, they raved about the Oyster Bar at Palace Station..they said it was so good and fresh.
      Looks like it's open 24/7 and said it was a blast.
      Who would of thunk?

          Palace Station might be the last place I would want to be for V-day though, it smells like a musty ashtray inside.

            Nothing says love 'like a musty ashtray' smell..
            Plus, after midnight, it's the 15th and not Valentine's anymore.
            ; )

              Yeah, in that case, its all about Peppermill. On the complete other side, the Lucky's 24/7 at HRH is always a solid and not pricey late night - but not even a smidge of romance.

        2. Ferraros on Paradise is open until 2am, 4am on weekends

            Ah yes, the Paradise option...there's also Musashi right across from Firefly. Forgot about all those. thanks

          2. I am reigniting this thread.

            Do these recommendations still stand? We have booked a June trip, complete with show tickets. We are considering a late night dinner after one of our late night shows, (10 pm show on Tuesday night).

            Thank you in advance!

              All of these places remain open and I can personally vouch for Mr. Lucky's and Peppermill being hilariously "Vegas" with good food while Raku remains one of the best restaurants in the city - if not the country.

                Thank you! Raku is on the short list for our Tuesday late dinner.
